| Chest Pain Related to Hyperthyroidism |
Answered by: Christine Dennis
Question from: Sharon
Posted on: May 17, 2008
I would like to inquire on what is the herbal treatment for chest pains (angina) related to coronary artery spasm suggestive from hyperthyroidism. I have chest pains, increased heart rate, shortness of breathing, pain in the back, hand tremors, eye pain, sweating, high T3, high T4 but in normal range TSH. I have normal blood sugar level, normal lipid cholesterol levels. My echo cardiographic report and ecg electrocardiogram reveals normal results. I have been stressed and I observed symptoms get worse when stressed. Please help me and enlighten my mind on the herbal treatment for my chest pains. Also, is it advisable for me to go for homeopathic alternative treatment for chest pains and hyperthyroidism? What are the possible homeopathic treatment for it? More power!
I can not advise you regarding homeopathics, however, there is much that can be done with herbs. Herbs such as motherwort, lemon balm and bugleweed have been used in similar cases. I have found in my practice that by using in conjunction with adrenal tonics such a ginseng, licorice, spikenard or Siberian ginseng along with other systemic nervines such as valerian, passionflower, wild lettuce and California poppy, helps to give longer lasting results as well as helps to deal with the underlying cause. I suspect that your digestive system and blood sugar regulation will also need to be addressed.
